The Boar Of The Ardennes Is Sharpening His Fangs

Michael Matthews, Phil Gil and Tony Gallopin.




One of the enjoyable aspects of cycle racing is watching an old hero return to his winning ways. That's what happened to Philippe Gilbert today as he won the one-day classic Brabantse Pijl. He previously won this race as during his magical 2011. Now, the Ardennes trio of races are upcoming. And, something tells me that the Boar of the Ardennes is just sharpening his fangs.


This is big for my morale, and helps ahead of the Ardennes Classics. We will have to wait until LBL to make our conclusions. If I win today and not in the upcoming three races, it's not a good classics season.

Phil Gil is back!




Sunday is the Amstel Gold Race..

TGIF: The Hell Of The North






I will be up early Sunday morning to watch my favorite race of the season... the 112th Hell of the North.

Who will survive the over 6 hours of 51kms of cobbles punishment, conquer the wind, choking rain or dust, punctures and mechanicals? I'll be watching and wish all the finishing riders can win the cobble stone trophy (above). It wouldn't be a race without one winner...  it's going to fun to watch!

Paris Roubaix: Sur Le Pavé, La Légende





Paris Roubaix is this Sunday and we're awaiting anxiously to watch it. We love the French history, cobbles, the Arenberg Forest, the riders and everything else of this phenomenally rugged race. To honor our favorite classic, we have created our popular...

Yesterday, we received our new shipment of fabric. It includes our newest linen/cotton fabric for our new cycling cap. We'll give you a hint -  it will be white!









I will be up early Sunday morning to watch the Tour of Flanders. It will be a busy morning for me as I will also get ready for the Pacific Populaire 100km ride at 9 AM. It seems I won't have time to watch the end of the Ronde. So, my prediction is for Peter Sagan to win his first monument. And, I plan to finish and enjoy my first century - of the season.



Belgian grit!

Make room for our newest cycling cap for Spring, it's orange with a crowning touch... introducing the King Dutch Cycling Cap!

We love orange and have always had an orange cap in stock. It's made from pre-washed linen/cotton. Paying close attention to the Dutch contribution in cycling we have added our own unique embroidered Dutch crown design, navy blue under brim, flag detail and 'rd' logo. You don't have to be Dutch to enjoy one!
